A Grand Fans Day for ABS-CBN’s teleserye Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin was recently held at a mall in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Lead actor Coco Martin, who plays the dual roles of Alexander del Tiero and Javier, belted out songs that delighted his fans and supporters. Their special guest that day, Angeline Quinto, also performed the theme song of the ABS-CBN teleserye.
In an interview with Entertainment Live aired last August 13, Coco expressed his gratitude to those who showed their support for the TV show, which ends this Friday.
"Napakainit ng pagtanggap. Napakasarap. Kahit puyat na puyat ako, tapos pupunta ako sa ganitong karaming tao tapos makita kong excited na makita kami, kahit di kagandahan ang boses ko, dinadamihan ko ang kanta ko. Ayokong sandali ko lang silang makita at mapasalamatan."
Angeline was excited and nervous at the same time. The young and promising singer considers Coco as one of her idols. "Ito po sana ang una kong nakasama si Coco Martin mag mall show. Noong una kinakabahan ako siyempre dahil idol ko si Coco."
It was reported that Coco gave a necklace to Angeline that she considers as a "lucky charm." Coco’s jovial reply was "Thank you po!" The actor further added "Nakakatuwa kasi pareho kaming may kuwintas na ganyan...Nakakatuwa kasi parang siya ang babaeng version ko noong nagsisimula pa lang ako."
The award-winning actor admits that he misses his co-star, pretty mom-to-be Andi Eigenmann. He remarked, "Sobra! [na-miss] Si Andi ngayon parang baby namin. Ang saya-saya niya. Laging naka-smile. Ang ganda-ganda niya sa set. Kumbaga, yung suportang binibigay sa kanya, lahat ng pag-aalaga. Lalo na’t six months na. After nito, makabalik agad siya. I’m sure mas lalalim pa siya bilang artista."
Coco revealed that he also misses doing indie films. He starred in countless indie films before becoming a mainstream actor. "Sabi ko nga, nalulungkot ako. Dun ako nagsimula ngayon wala nang kumukuha sa akin. Sabi ko nga, pag nagkaroon ng chance, ako’ng maghahanap ng paraan."
The actor disclosed that televiewers should anticipate the explosive ending of the story. "Si Javier kasi matagal nang pinangarap na makamit niya ang buhay ni Alexander which is ngayon nakuha na niya lahat para masira niya si Alexander. Kahit mahirap ang suportahan mga kapwa ko artista para makayanan ang mga eksena, nakakatuwa kasi may bonding..."
Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin aired its final episode on August 19, 2011.
